hReview FAQ

This page is for documenting Q&A about hReview.

  1. Some of the values for the 'type' field could use some more details, and some specific examples might be useful. In particular, I wonder about the 'product' type. If you are reviewing a book, a movie on DVD (or in a theater, for that matter), or a music CD, should you use the product type? Or since you're typically reviewing the content, and not the literal, physical product, should you just not specify a type? Or should there be a 'media' type? Also, what is the difference between the 'website' and 'url' type? --Dougal Campbell 11:54, 21 Jun 2005 (PDT)

  2. I'm curious as to why the limited list of types, and why it needs to be limited to the 7 values listed. I can see the benefit of limiting it somewhat, but limiting it also assumes in a sense that nothing else would be reviewed, or that users of the structured data don't care to know the type of those other items. What if I want to use hReview to review a podcast, for example? I could shove that into one of the types already defined, but none are quite the right fit.
    • The goal of the type field is to give a general category into which the reviewed item falls. The list is constricted to a set which will cover most items.
